{Holiday Entertaining} Molasses Cookie Recipe

Picture 2

We top our moist Molasses Cookies with a light layer of lemony frosting.


1 cup(s) (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
2 tablespoon(s) butter, warm
1 cup(s) granulated sugar
1 cup(s) molasses
1 cup(s) sour cream
2 teaspoon(s) ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon(s) salt
3 teaspoon(s) baking soda
3 tablespoon(s) white vinegar
3 eggs, beaten
4 cup(s) sifted flour
2 cup(s) (packed) confectioners' sugar, sifted
5 1/2 tablespoon(s) milk, warm
3 tablespoon(s) milk, very hot
1 teaspoon(s) lemon extract


1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Beat butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in molasses, sour cream, ginger, and salt. Combine the baking soda and vinegar in a small bowl, and add to butter mixture. Beat in the eggs until combined. Stir in flour. Place a heaping tablespoonful of dough per cookie, 2 inches apart, onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean--about 15 minutes. Transfer pan to a wire rack to cool completely before frosting.

3. Beat confectioners' sugar, 5 1/2 tablespoons warm milk, and remaining 2 tablespoons warm butter together using a wooden spoon. Stir in lemon extract. Add remaining 3 tablespoons hot milk and beat until smooth. Use immediately to frost cookie. Spread 1 teaspoon frosting on top of each cookie. Let frosting set before serving.

Thank you for this great recipe and pictures!
